On 2015 we hit the road with our converted Dodge Van. We have been traveling around USA and Canada and we are currently in Europe for two months.
During the last year, I’ve been taking photos of all the vans that we found on the road. I realized there’s a lot of types of cars where people live in, from the most classic to the most weird: vans, cars, trucks, RVs, trailers, buses, etc.
So I started painting with gouache a set of vans that could express the variety of what we find on our way. The final product is a 2016 calendar, with one illustration for each month. Everything handmade, even the typography!
As I'm really happy with all my illustrations and I think people would like to have them, my goal is to convert it into a 2016 calendar. I’m also really happy to sell all my original paintings so they can hang on the walls of your houses or vans. They all are painted using gouache, in a 300gr 100% cotton paper.
I’ll send calendars and paintings to anywhere in the world on early December. I expect you will get them before the end of the year. A calendar is included when purchasing one of the original paintings.

Risks and challenges
I could have problems printing the calendars. The supplier could deliver the final product later than we agreed, or the transportation could take longer than they expected.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
